Yes he will be ranked in the top 10 if he wins (about No.4).

Junior banned from US Open

Margie McDonald | August 18, 2007

FOR the second time in two months, Tennis Australia has enforced its tough-love policy, suspending promising junior Brydan Klein from the US Open for bad behaviour.

The world No.9 junior, Klein was sent home from a tournament in Britain last week after an on-court outburst.
He will not be allowed to play until he completes an education course on anger management.

The Perth 18-year-old, who was junior boys champion at the Australian Open last January, reached the round of 16 at the French Open and the quarter-finals at Wimbledon, was sent home from the qualifying tournament after losing his third-round match to Britain's Tim Hewitt 6-2 2-6 6-3.

It follows TA's decision to send home 14-year-old Bernard Tomic of Queensland after he lost in the second round of the junior boys singles at Roland Garros, therefore denying him the chance of playing at Wimbledon.

Tomic's punishment was for his apathetic display in matches and for not putting in the effort.

A full scholarship-holder with the Australian Institute of Sport's tennis program, Klein has been travelling with two AIS coaches and other Australian juniors on a European tour. A player with a strong attacking game, especially on hardcourt and grass, Klein is also known to have a volatile temper. It was the AIS coaches who handed out the punishment.

TA's director of player development, and tournament director at the Australian Open, Craig Tiley, made no apologies yesterday for having Klein suspended from competition.

"We hold a very high standard with on-court behaviour with our players and he did not meet that standard, when he was competing in England," Tiley said yesterday. "There is a standard of behaviour for all athletes to adhere to no matter who they are."

It is anticipated that it will be a four- to six-week suspension for Klein so he can work with a sports psychologist on how to achieve his goals in becoming a champion player. "The type of behaviour exhibited on the court that is contrary to becoming a great player needs to be stamped out as early as possible," Tiley said.

He did not detail the nature of Klein's bad behaviour.

But he agreed there was a big difference between natural exuberance and aggression, as opposed to bad sportsmanship. "Absolutely. There are codes of conduct administered by the tours (ATP and WTA) and the ITF and at the very minimum we expect our players to meet those, but we've raised the bar higher," Tiley said. "Very simply because it's part of becoming a great player." Regarding Tomic, Tiley said the youngster was back playing and with renewed enthusiasm.

"He's back and doing well. He's been hard at training," he said. "It was a different situation, but we were equally as hard on him and very swift, very immediate with our actions." Tomic was also required to undergo counselling and work with a sports psychologist before resuming tournament play. "I'm charged with developing these players and part of that development is setting such a high standard in playing performance and player behaviour," Tiley said.

Well done Tennis Australia. I have had the misfortune to see Klein play and he is horrible on the court. He swears, calles the opponent horrible things. In an interview a few months back he said that he didn't understand why he was fined a code of conduct for saying p*ssy on the court. Seriously!! He must be the biggest ....

I think it is good that TA are hard on them. It is one thing having a temper, and another being plain disrespectful to your opponent and those around you, which Klein is!

Timbo
08-24-2007, 03:31 PM
Yup, that's a fair enough thing for TA to do, as long as it's done sensitively. If the player knows it's being done to help his game he's more likley to accept it. What we don't want is players getting pi**ed off with TA and going off on their own. Looks like Tomic has taken it well, but he has a few more years to play juniors...this would've been Klein's last as a junior. He hasn't made any real inroads on the senior front yet...I hope he does.

aussie_fan
08-25-2007, 02:57 AM
I hope this doesn't backfire on TA. I haven't really seen Klein play so i don't know how bad it is but we need playing to start climbing up the ranks so hopefully Klein takes it the right way otherwise TA had made another stuff up.

Experimentee
08-28-2007, 06:51 AM
I'm really interested to know what it was that Klein did to inspire this ban.

When I saw him play in the U18 tournament he did seem to have a lack of respect for his opponent, and made some insulting comments to him. John Fitzgerald was watching near me and he was not impressed at all with Klein's ball abuse.

Not a bad move from TA if it will make him realise that what he does is wrong.

I'm a bit more confused about the Tomic decision, I dont know all the facts but how can they tell whether it was a lack of effort or just having a bad day? They should give him the benefit of doubt there.

Well you could go and see him in Felixstone this week but I dont know how far away you are from there. But yes he is the last direct entrant into the Manchester Challenger. Brydan is definetly not a Guccione type, he has good groundstrokes. youtube.com/watch?v=fch5XOWA5W4 - a video of him playing against Robert Smeets the recent winner of the Dublin challnger last week.

If you get the chance check out Greg Jones as well if he gets in the main draw, he is like Brydan but has a massive serve.

Wow impressive stuff from Brydan, If he is able to win this tournament that puts a major twist into the US Open Wildcard. Brydan can actually be ranked higher than Groth Ebelthite and Lindahl if he wins this tournament and is not far behind Carsten and on top of all of that will be within reach of the top 200 if he does well in the next indian challenger. Unfortunately for Brydan Carsten Ball is still going in the US challenger. If Carsten matches Brydan's performance this week in challengers (which could be tough for Carsten to make at least semis) then I cannot see how they could possibly give it to Brydan over Carsten. Its only fair that he has been playing higher standard tennis than Brydan for most of the year. But Im very confident that Brydan will be in top 100 within the next year after this performance and wont need these wildcards.

Prediction: 2012 Davis Cup Team -

Making it to the Semis here will do wonders for his ranking. It would be great if he could make the finals after such a great week. He has a great chance in making it there too; he is versing 317th ranked Conor Niland.

Good luck. :)

Brydan Klein got knocked out in the Semifinal in a close 3 setter. Dissapointing to see him lose, but nonetheless, a great tournament from Brydan. He should move up to around 250-255 in the rankings on Monday. It's been a great week for all the Aussies, and it's still not over! :)

Lost 6-0, 6-4 to Berdych today...came out super nervous but started to get into the match from 3-0 down in the 2nd...broke Berdych and then pushed him. It wasn't until then that his feet started to move, was very sluggish probably due to the nerves

Was really nervous for Brydan at 60 30 down. Loved his reaction when he won his first game. He played like a different person after that and matched Berdych game for game. Berdych played flawless for the first 9 games. Its a pity Brydan didn't take the break point opportunity at 5-4. Would have been interesting at 5 all. Good it was on TV.

Brydan has progressed his way to the final of the Burnie Challenger this week without dropping a set! With this result Brydan will move to around 202 in the world, if he can take out Zemelja tommorow he'll move to around 193 in the world and be the fourth highest ranked Australian on the tour.

However he does have some points to defend from last years future victories so lets hope he can gain enough points in Mildura (future) and Melbourne (challenger) to maintain a spot in the top 200. I'd say Klein is a very big chance to finish this year in the top 150 after the way he has started this year.

There's been press about Tomic not getting, haven't seen that. Silly if true, Tomic is still probably too young

Klein was probably the only logical choice for the 4th spot considering Luzcak is playing clay challengers in Morroco and moving back to a faster surface would be pointless for the 4th spot. Hopefully Klein gets to play a dead rubber.

He's picking and choosing the events to play that he knows he can win, I think it's a smart strategy, he obviously knows his limitations. He already stated he'll be back to play Burnie next year so it's not like he's pumping himself up to be on the world tour soon. Don't worry about the idiots on GM who discount all these performances, they just say stuff like that to cancel out the people that are pumping him up.

Klein to make Davis Cup debut

Bangkok, 05 March 2009
Tennis Australia

Brydan Klein will make his Davis Cup debut against Thailand in Bangkok.

West Australian teenager Brydan Klein was this morning named to make his Optus Australian Davis Cup singles debut against Thailand in Bangkok tomorrow.

Lleyton Hewitt will lead off against 18-year-old Davis Cup debutant Kittipong Wachiramanowong after which Klein will make his national debut against Thai number one and former top 100 player Danai Udomchoke.

The teams were named and the draw conducted in a lavish ceremony at the National Tennis Development Centre in Nonthaburi, Bangkok, with a dancing baby elephant using its trunk to draw the names out of a gold bowl much to the delight of a large local media contingent.

“I am very excited, hopefully I can get us off to a good start,” Klein said.

The winner of this Asia–Oceania Group One Davis Cup by BNP Paribas tie will play the winner of Chinese Taipei versus India for a berth in September’s World Group Play-off.

Optus Australian Davis Cup captain John Fitzgerald said Klein’s good lead-up form and strong hitting in practice had earned him his chance.

“He had come here in good form and is hitting the ball as well as I’ve seen him. One thing you can be sure of with Brydan is he will give his utmost out there on the court.”

Hewitt was happy with the draw and said the team's sole aim was to get back in the World Group, of which they hope this will be the first step.

“For me it is just a matter of us getting back into the World Group. We feel like we belong in the World Group and that’s what we’re here to do this week. Whether I get the three wins or we do it combined, we want to get in the World Group, that’s what we’re here to do.”

The former world number one said he was pleased with his form leading up to the tie.

“The way I played in Memphis I was very happy … it was the best I have played in a long time."

The Australians named Chris Guccione and Carsten Ball in the doubles to meet twins Sonchat and Sanchai Ratiwatana on Saturday afternoon.

The reverse singles will be played on Sunday.

Tomorrow's matches start at 11am local time (3:00pm Melbourne time).

I like this choice, hes obviously playing better than the Gooch in practice. I always got the feeling with the Gooch that he could actually lose to anyone on a given day so I like the consistency that Klein will bring to that singles spot.

Dont be suprised if Brydan beats Udomchoke, last singles match Udomchoke played he only won one game and that was against Marinko Matosevic! Bernard is not far behind so its very good that Brydan is getting to play a singles match now because I cant see him getting too many more opportunities in the future with Lleyton and Bernard.

After a horror Davis Cup debut Brydan is playing in a 50k Bangkok challenger this week. This is his quarter:

7 Daniel Brands GER v Florian Mayer GER
Kittipong Wachiramanowong THA v Brydan Klein AUS
Dieter Kindlmann GER v Marsel Ilhan TUR
2 Hyung-Taik Lee KOR v QUALIFIER

Not the hardest first round for Brydan but he does have 30 points to defend this week and to do so he would likely have to make semi finals which would not be easy in this quarter. He should at least pick up a first round victory here though. Good luck Brydan.

He just couldn't control his anger. He threw the racket so many times and got
several warnings. Actually, his game was a lot better.

Good news, he is back to competitive tennis on the european clay in the Rome challenger next week. Following that he will play a hard court challenger in Spain. Then I would think he would play the challenger in Italy the week after, and then maybe a tournament in Croatia or France. But he is definetly gearing up for French Qualies thats for sure.

He'll either play Dudi Sela or Naom Okun, doesn't really have much to lose so he could go out and maybe cause an upset against Dudi like Groth did last year. He's playing in Turkey on Hard next week and then heading to France for French qualies.

Not playing on clay prior to French qualies won't help but maybe he is more focused on gaining points right now than playing Grand Slams which is fair enough.

In hindsight, I think a first round loss in his first overseas tourney was acceptable. It is pretty hard to play against a different style of game.

Played well against Sela. Served for the second set and got broken unfortunately. I think at the moment his is still learning how to play on clay and over time his game will adapt to this. Clay will never be his strongest surface but hopefully with improvement he can still win on it unlike so many of the other aussies.

yep great work by Brydan this week, heres hoping he can qualifying seeing as the qualifiers in round 1 all draw unseeded players except for one. he really need to gain some points soon as he has 6 points to defend this week and 42 points to defend at the end of Wimbledon.

Seeing as a qualification in an ATP tournament gives you 12 points it is likely Brydan will only have to defend 36 points at the end of Wimbledon. Unfortunately he is not playing in any other challengers between now and the end of Wimbledon so he will either have to make a good run here in Eastbourne or do well in Wimbledon qualifying.

His position is a lot like Carsten Balls in regards to ranking points, if he can continue to gain the same amount of points he gained last year he will climb the rankings due to overhaul of the ranking system this year. If Brydan keeps this up and defends all his points from last year I'm sure he will be inside the top 150 by the years end.

None the less GL in Eastbourne and Wimbledon.

Congrats to Brydan for going through qualifying, very tight match against Klaasen 6-7 7-6 7-6. lets hope he wins a match here.

in the first round he'll either face:

Ivo Minar
Teimuraz Gabashvili
Joshua Goodall
Igor Andreev

Andreev is the number one seed but I could see Brydan beating either Minar or Goodall. Lets just hope he draws one of those two.

Brydan could enter qualies in a challenger next week but it seems doubtful considering what he has done this week. He can't get a Secured Entry either because he didnt enter those challengers in the first place. Best chance would probably be to get given a wildcard.

With this first round victory there isn't as much to worry about his ranking because he gained 42 points this time last year at the end of Wimbledon and this year has he already gained 32 this week. It's two weeks later he has to worry about when he has another 34 points, 10 points the week after and then another 10 points the week after that. But if Brydan does not gain any points between now and then he will still be ranked about 210 which isn't too bad.

But then the following 2 weeks after that he has 74 points to defend so thats gonna be tough. But then he only has 38 points to defend for the rest of the year so thats not too bad. I'm really hoping he can keep his spot in the top 200.

Klein has been suspended for six months by the ATP...and fined more cash...it might be reduced to 4 months if he completes a Racial Sensitivity course.

stupid moron

ATP STATEMENT

Australian player Brydan Klein has been suspended from the ATP World Tour and ATP Challenger Tour tournaments for six months and fined an additional USD10,000 following a racial slur during a qualifying match on June 13, 2009 at the ATP World Tour 250 tournament in Eastbourne, England.

The penalty comes in addition to a EUR10,000 fine he was assessed on site for uttering a racial slur while playing against South African Raven Klaasen.

Under the ATP Code of Conduct, Klein was found to have committed the Player Major Offense, Aggravated Behavior. The incident was deemed to have been “behavior that is flagrant and particularly injurious to the success of a tournament or is singularly egregious.”

The determination said the use of the slur was “repugnant, and is particularly upsetting and entirely unacceptable for this to be used in a sporting event such as the ATP World Tour where equality amongst sportsmen is a predicate to fair competition and, indeed, paramount to the success of the Tour and of the Sport.”

Klein has the option of appealing the penalty or of accepting a reduced penalty option.

If he enrolls in and successfully completes a Racial Sensitivity Training course, which is acceptable to the ATP, within the first four months of the suspension the remaining two months suspension and the additional fine will be waived. The remaining two months of the suspension will be reclassified as a final probationary period, allowing him to return to the Tour.

The penalty is effective from July 20, 2009 unless he appeals the decision.

Wow ATP is serious. I wonder if he will still be able to play future tournaments as they are ITF events. I think the best thing for Brydan would be to complete this course and get the 4 month ban so that he can play the Australian events next year. Man I hope this is the end of Brydan getting banned.

Very silly of him and quite sad. I think he should do the training, not even so much to shorten the sentence but because he would obviously benefit from being taught some sensitivity, even in the heat of the moment!

It's not relevant but I wonder how he even knew the word he used (which I won't repeat here in case it offends anyone). I'd never even heard it. Does he have South African relatives or has he spent time there?

He's from Perth, where there is a large South African expat community...I'd imagine he probably heard people use the word there but may not have realised what it meant. I've spoken with a few people since this happened who just thought it was a term to describe all South Africans, like we use "Kiwi" to describe New Zealanders...even the term "Saffa" is quite similar. Still, ignorance is no defence. Brydan, just call your opponent a "c*nt" next time like everyone else and don't go fancy.

Thanks for that explanation - interesting. Actually I asked because I've lived in two different parts of Sydney with huge SA populations and have known many quite well, but maybe the people I know have been through sensitivity training and don't use that word ;)

Completely agree ignorance is no defence. I'm not sure I'd even call someone a Kiwi or Pom in the heat of the moment - an old friend over a convivial drink maybe but not someone I didn't know well that might take it the wrong way :shrug: Oh well, you live and learn these things.

Suprisingly Brydan has only 38 points left to defend this year and will almost definetly finish the year inside the top 250 which is a pretty good result for someone who has not played for half of the year. I wonder if he'll play any of the later Australian future tournaments.

Pressuming he completed the racial sensitivity course he will be unbanned on the 20th of November which makes him able to enter the last future tournament in Perth and then head to Melbourne for the last one before contesting the Wildcard playoff. Im guessing thats what he'll do.

Klein to make tennis comeback in Esperance

Tim Clarke
November 6, 2009

Disgraced WA Davis Cup tennis star Brydan Klein has revealed a ProTour event in Esperance this month will be the venue for his first appearance on a court since his ban for racially abusing a South African opponent at a UK tournament in July.

Originally suspended by the ATP for six months, Klein has since completed a racial sensitivity training course, with the final two months of his suspension reclassified as probationary, allowing him to return to the professional game.

Klein will use the Cliffs Esperance International in his home state to start his sporting rehabilitation, joining a host of Australian and international players, including former world No. 8 Alicia Molik.

“I’m really looking forward to getting back on court and playing again,” Klein said.

“I’m hitting well and I’m really fit at the moment, so I am confident I can go well in the tournament.

“Esperance is a really nice place and it is a great location to hold an event, it will be fantastic to play in front of fans in my home state.”

Klein's massive ban came after he was fined $14,000, the maximum possible under the ATP, for calling opponent Raven Klaasen a "f***ing kaffir" during a tournament in Eastbourne.

Klaasen’s coach Stephan de Kock later accused Klein of spitting in his direction during the match, which Klein eventually won.

Despite issuing a public apology, the ATP found Klein had committed "behaviour that is flagrant and particularly injurious to the success of a tournament or is singularly egregious".

"The determination said the use of the slur was ‘repugnant’, and is particularly upsetting and entirely unacceptable for this to be used in a sporting event such as the ATP World Tour,” the determination said.

The field in Esperance, between November 16 and 22, will also include Molik, who could take on Olivia Rogowska and WA's Jessica Moore.

Molik returned to professional tennis in September after her retirement from the sport 12 months ago.

She hopes by playing on the Australian Pro Tour she can increase her ranking to a sufficient level to compete on the WTA tour again.

Before her retirement, Molik played all four Grand Slams, winning two Grand Slam doubles titles; won the bronze medal for Australia at the Athens Olympics and represented Australia in the Fed Cup and Hopman Cup.

Great to see he is going to finally be playing next week. He has 12 points left to defend this year and three tournament (two in his home state) to gain the 12 points. His ranking currently stands at 208 which is extremely good considering he hasn't played for four months. Brydan says he is fit and hitting well so I guess we should expect a couple of big results in coming weeks.

I really hope he can win atleast the first match in the qualifying but sice he was suspended he hasn't been that great, my guess is he will lose in straight sets, but i would hate to see him lose in straight sets or even lose.

And if he wins he might play Bogomlov Jr who he played in the first round of qualifying in sydney and lost but he is capable of winning against him.

Marinko Marosevic did he get the last wildcard because his not in the qualifying and i thought Ebden had the last one easy but obviously not another stupid mistake by TA if he did.

SF Australia F3 Klein d. Mitchell 6-3 6-0. Very solid from Brydan there and nice to see him at the business end of tournaments again. His ranking currently sits at 354 and he has 46 points left to defend until November. He has gained 15 points this week so far and is likely to win the tournament and gain 27 points. If he can back up next week again and win the tournament in Bundaberg again then he will most likely be ranked inside the top 300 and push on for the rest of the year.

His schedule is a bit up in the air though, probably needs to play a couple more futures after these aussie ones but he is looking good to get back to where he was a year ago with these types of results. When you take into account he is only 20 years old there seems to be a lot of potential there. Whoever wins the final tommorow is good for Australian tennis but I'm pulling more for Jason at this point.

http://www.news-mail.com.au/story/2010/05/08/sliding-into-semi-finals/

REFORMED wild child Brydan Klein continued to do it the hard way at Drinan Park yesterday, forcing his way into the semi-final with a hard-fought 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 defeat of Joel Lindner.

Klein showed he had the mental stamina required at the top level, as his third comeback win in as many matches set up a semi-final with Great Britain’s Myles Blake this morning.

Blake dropped just five games against Kiwi Marvin Barker in his quarterfinal, while Klein’s mammoth schedule is beginning to take its toll.

Backing up from singles and doubles triumphs in Ipswich last week, the top seed won his doubles final with Dane Propoggia yesterday and admitted he was starting to feel it.

“I’m pretty exhausted,” he said.

“I get back to my hotel and realise how tired I am, but each morning I wake up and I’m pumped again to play well.”

He could have easily thrown in the towel against a red-hot Lindner, after losing a tight first set.

In what was a replay of last week’s Ipswich quarterfinal, Klein had a chance to break at 4-4, but instead the big-serving left hander held serve and chanced his arm in the next game.

“He went for it and it paid off and he took the set away from me,” Klein said.

Facing defeat yet again, Klein became the aggressor in the second set, attacking Lindner’s serve and staying in every rally.

He jumped to an early advantage and hung on to level the match at one set each.

“My mentality at first was to get the ball back and wait for an error,” Klein said.

“But he wasn’t giving me those, so I decided to step my play up and go for some more shots.”

Lindner kept firing away from the back of the court in the third set, while the occasional serve volley kept Klein guessing.

But as the match progressed, the favourite found his groove and wore down an ailing Lindner.

Some crunching returns went for cold winners either side of Lindner and sealed his fate.

“I got into a nice rhythm toward the end and was probably playing the best tennis I’ve played at Bundaberg and Ipswich,” Klein said.

“The consistency isn’t there yet, but in patches I’m definitely lifting my game.”

Similarly to the first two rounds, Klein failed to convert in the first set, mainly due to some fierce serving from the tall left hander.

His doubles partner Propoggia will play Marcus Daniell in the other semi-final later today.

The third-seeded Daniell fought hard to overcome talented James Duckworth 3-6, 6-4, 6-4.

Propoggia, the seventh seed, was too good for Japanese second seed Arata Onozawa 6-4, 7-5.

He is fighting extremely well with the chest infection last week and now the tiredness after playing a fair bit of tennis (doubles and singles wins). Also worth noting he had a bit of a minor disagreement with the umpire in the first round where Klein believes he said far out but the umpire thought he said something else. Will be interesting to see of he pushes onto Busan next week.

Back to back future titles isn't easy anywhere but also winning the doubles events at both futures as well makes it that much more impressive. Brydan is not in the Busan draw so he must have pulled out which is probably a good thing, he deserves a rest. The week after this week he is gonna play in a Uzebeki challenger so hopefully he can make a run there. I wonder if he will play any more futures from now onwards, his ranking will be around 280 after next week so perhaps he will just play challengers.

Either way good luck Brydan, you still have lots of time before you need to get back to where you were this time last year.

Sorry my mistake - either TA originally posted the result incorrectly or I read it wrong! I thought Bryden would win that match, and did win it well. Had a close run against Jesse Levine, losing 7-6(4), 7-6(8). a good performance, unfortunate score-line.

Brydan Klein v Erik Chvojka (WC)

Head to head - Never played
Ranking - 295 (Klein) 596 (Chvojka)
Height - 6'0 (Klein) unknown (Chvojka)
Latest meeting - Never played
Last 5 matches - LWWWL (Klein) LLLWL (Chvojka)

I have to say he seems to be getting some pretty good challenger draws lately. Hopefully he can keep up the wins because he is winning a lot more now at a challenger level than he was in 2009.

Granby Quarterfinal

Brydan Klein v Go Soeda (2)

Head to head - never played
Ranking - 295 (Klein) 116 (Soeda)
Height - 6'0 (Klein) 5'10 (Soeda)
Latest meeting - never played
Last 5 matches - WWLWW (Klein) WWLWL (Soeda)
Last match score - 6-3 6-3 (Klein) 6-3 6-4 (Soeda)

I think Brydan has a good chance against Soeda, perhaps even a finals showing. Either way it is already a good week for Brydan and if he wins this match against Soeda he will get secured entry into next weeks Vancouver challenger main draw which would be very good for him.

Come on Brydan your not that far away from the top 250 now.

Klein went down to Soeda, the No.2 seed 7-6(3), 6-1. Heading for Vancouver now, I presume?

Playing in the Vancouver qualies, Bryden is into the finals. Should qualify if he plays to current form.

He did which was great and he now has to play number three seed Dudi Sela which will be very tough for him.

Unlucky Kleinie, a loss to Dudi Sela in three sets after stealing the 1st 7-6. then going down 61, 64.

At Binghamton, Bryden lost in final round of qualifying to Canadian Klingemann, then got lucky loser, only to go own in straight sets to Rajeev Ram. Not much success for the Aussies today at Binghamton, only Gooch (who beat Millman)and Marinko (who got a lucky loser after Tursunov failed to show for his WC)winning. Lindahl, Feeney, Kelly (lucky loser) and Jonesie also played today and lost. So MM, Gooch and Ebden through, Ball losing yesterday.

Klein is back playing the Australian Futures events like he has been for over half a decade now (including qualies). He lost in the semi-finals of the F6 last week and is seeded 2nd for the F7 this week (events in Darwin and Alice Springs respectively).

So after a runner up showing in last weeks future where he lost to Erik Chvojka, he is this week into the semifinals of the Aussie future where he beat Chvojka in straights in the quarters. Brydan looks like a pretty good chance to win this title. Next up is Jarod Easton followed by either Michael Look or Sebastian Rieschick in the final. If Brydan can manage to win this week he'll be in almost the exact same position as he was this time last year. With one more future in New Zealand that Bydan has entered this year there is a possibility he will finish inside the top 200 with Millman, Ball, Luczak, Ebden and Matosevic.

He has been very clever about his scheduling this year and seems a lot more focused than probably he ever has been. With some form behind him it seems like he is sort of starting to live up to expectations. Next year should be interesting because he will have Brisbane, Sydney, Australian Open, Burnie CH and Caloundra CH with nothing to defend, could be an interesting year for Brydan in 2011.

Brydan now into he is third future final in a row and his sixth for the season. Hopefully he can pull this one out. Next week he'll play in New Zealand and finish the year with the future in Bendigo. Brydan may actually be a tough competitor in the WC playoffs seeing as he is in some good form now.

Third consecutive futures final loss for Brydan and all to different opponents. This week in Wellington Brydan will once again be the number one seed and the only players who would seem to get in Brydan's way will probably be Rieschick (number 2 seed) again, Michael Venus(3rd seed) and perhaps to a lesser extent Sam Groth.

Although Brydan isn't winning these tournaments he is being very consistent lately and that is exactly what he wants coming into the Aussie summer. His ranking isn't really an issue at this point because being ranked 225 and being ranked 195 doesn't have a huge difference at all. It will be interesting to see if Brydan can make a forth consecutive final this week which is definitely do-able given the field and Brydan most likely being fired up again after losing a final once again.

Brydan will then take the week of Trarlgon off and prepare for the final Aussie future of the year in Bendigo. In Bendigo he will be joined by a strong field that includes Lindahl, Lemke, Klec, Rieschick, Venus, Groth, Ebelthite, Chvojka and Udomchoke. I doubt Brydan will have a chance at winning that one but should be a good test seeing as he will most likely be the number one seed again.

Brydan got a good win over Groth in semis 6-1 7-5. Now his forth consecutive final, Rieschick again and will be tough for Klein to win this one.

Matchu

Lost to Rieschick again 7-5 6-3. A week off now for Brydan before playing Bendigo in preparation for the WC playoffs. Four consecutive finals in any type of tournament is extremely impressive and if he keeps up this form he will be back to where he was last year in no time and be a very hard player to beat.

Klein is playing in the Bath Challenger in England this week. First up match-up is against Andrej Martin from the Slovak Republic. Not the worst draw but Klein lost to Martin 36 26 in the Sarajevo Chalanger two weeks ago. Let's hope Klein can to turn things around and get a win this week. He will no doubt be down on confidence as he has not had a good start to the year with only 1 win out of 10 matches.
